2011 was a very bad year for personal freedom.
Right now, you might be cheerfully gabbing away on the newest incarnation of the IPhone that you got for Christmas, blithely unaware at the erosion that is carving away ever so delicately at all we hold dear.
The funny thing about erosion is this: we don't realize it's happening because it's so gradual. It isn't until the cliff starts crumbling away under our very feet that we realize that something has been insidiously chipping away at the very structure and stability of our way of life.
Throughout the year.........
Protests in the Middle East met with violent resistance from the government....many suggest that the attempts to quash the people are only a hint of things to come in the United States.

US President Barack Obama extended the powers of the PATRIOT Act, arguably the most unpatriotic unconstitutional document ever to cross the desk in the Oval Office.

Occupy Wall Street protests began in New York City. The protests spread around the world, with people voicing their dissatisfaction with the "1%" of the population that controls the wealth of the country. While vocal, the protesters did not have a clear agenda. They raised some awareness but actually accomplished little. They were met with more force than was absolutely necessary on many occasions, being tear-gassed, manhandled, shoved, and arrested for exercising their rights to assembly.

TSA searches become "enhanced" as the federal government loosens constraints on the thoroughness of searches, including pat-downs and cavity searches. The only way to refuse this treatment is to sacrifice your plane ticket and give up your flight.

The National Defense Authorization Act passes the Senate. This act declares the United States of America a war zone, allowing for the applicable martial law rules such as indefinite detention without trial, use of military force against suspected terrorists, and rules out ANY LIMITS on Presidential authority.
Unofficially, 2011 has been the year that the American government has declared war on it's people. It is no longer a representative government but the beginning of the Oligarchy that intends to take complete power in 2012.
2011 can kiss my ass. It's over, as of today, and I hope the current Powers That Be have enjoyed rubbing their greedy little hands together over the corpse of the Constitution like flies over a rotten pickle.
Because in 2012 the battle to reclaim our freedom will begin in earnest. Educate yourselves. Make noise. Tell everyone. The invasion isn't coming - it's already here.
It is not only already here. Unless lots of us get real serious real quick, it may already be over like they think it is. It may be over in their minds, but it will never be over,in my mind, as long as it functions. This is one of those things that you will carry to your grave, no matter how long/short that may be.ReplyDelete
Rowdy, I firmly believe that 2012 will make us or break us as free human beings. It's time to "go hard or go home".....and I am NOT goin' home!ReplyDelete
Didn't you just move your home? At least there are a couple of us. Do you still have my email. holler at me. You need to go critique what work I got done on my site over the holidays.ReplyDelete
Yep in the final days they will expect us to all be huddled in a corner somewhere. No communications since they said they were coming for us. (which is about now) and scared to death. Not me, SURPRISE. I am goin huntin one last time.
Hey, Rowdy - yep - I will shoot you an email, buddy - I'd love to check out your site. Feel free to post a link here - I believe the parameters allow it!ReplyDelete
Indeed. Thank you Daisy. Actually I have two links I would like to post, actually three but I will put up the two I care most about.ReplyDelete
